Problem statement: The main task of this study was finding out an effective algorithm in order to match two fingerprints taken from database. The fingerprint identification techniques used in a small database in order to find out an effective algorithm to develop the accuracy in matching process. Higher-level application of this proposed algorithm was determined. Approach: The main objectives in this study were the construction of fingerprint database and matching algorithm for comparison of two fingerprints. Results: In this study, Visual C++ with the library software Open CV implemented the proposed algorithm. The main program operated in two distinct modes. Conclusion: Fingerprint identification was that utilized the frequency and orientation information available in a fingerprint. The technique exploited both local and global characteristics in a fingerprint image to verify an identity.
